    mii-tool

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           mii-tool  [-v, --verbose] [-V, --version] [-R, --reset] [-r, --restart]
           [-w,   --watch]   [-l,   --log]   [-A,   --advertise=media,...]    [-F,
           --force=media] interface ...
    
    
    

    NOTE

           This  program  is  obsolete. Valid media are only 100baseT4, 100baseTx-
           FD,100baseTx-HD, 10baseT-FD and 10baseT-HD ethernet cards. For replace-
           ment check ethtool.
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This  utility  checks or sets the status of a network interface's Media
           Independent Interface (MII) unit.  Most fast ethernet adapters  use  an
           MII to autonegotiate link speed and duplex setting.
    
           Most  intelligent  network  devices  use an autonegotiation protocol to
           communicate what media technologies they support, and then  select  the
           fastest  mutually  supported  media  technology.  The -A or --advertise
           options can be used to tell the MII to only advertise a subset  of  its
           capabilities.   Some  passive  devices,  such as single-speed hubs, are
           unable to autonegotiate.  To handle such devices, the MII protocol also
           allows  for establishing a link by simply detecting either a 10baseT or
           100baseT link beat.  The -F or --force options can be used to force the
           MII  to operate in one mode, instead of autonegotiating.  The -A and -F
           options are mutually exclusive.
    
           The default short output reports the negotiated  link  speed  and  link
           status for each interface.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -v, --verbose
                  Display  more  detailed  MII status information.  If used twice,
                  also display raw MII register contents.
    
           -V, --version
                  Display program version information.
    
           -R, --reset
                  Reset the MII to its default configuration.
    
           -r, --restart
                  Restart autonegotiation.
    
           -w, --watch
                  Watch interface(s) and report changes in link status.   The  MII
                  interfaces are polled at one second intervals.
    
           -l, --log
                  Used  with  -w,  records  link  status changes in the system log
